“Very misleading website”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

Photos are from the hotel in her heyday, pretty outside. A colleague and I both had very cramped rooms, one air con unit was very poor. Fairly clean but run down, main plus is proximity to airport, besides that, there are no nearby restaurants or really any good shops, just more tacky stuff. We explored several squares and streets, but the place was so quiet, not even local bars. Ended up eating at kfc as too tired to find a taxi and look further afield. We had previously stated at the La Creole resort for a conference, but again far from decent food or shopping really, besides some nice cafes down the road.
Very disappointed with hotel Saint John Perse, does not match website at all. When booked, the website said breakfast included, but thus was not the case. Shower poor. Not impressed. It is in the city centre apparently, but there's nothing to do. We didn't have much time to explore and struggled to be inspired.
Even for ease of airport transfers, if I come again I will stay somewhere else further away to avoid this hotel.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you have an alternative. I haven't checked other hotels, but I would not...

This hotel is just for a transition night.
My room was small, creepy, smelly and noisy (clim + not isolated).
No private parking, it is impossible to park around during the day.
By night (~6.30pm) the Neighbourhood is empty of restaurants but full of prostitutes and dealers... !!
I strongly not recommand this hotel unless you have no choice ... quality / price is also very bad.

Room Tip: Go anywhere else !

This hotel is very well located near the harbour to take a cruise. However, if you have another option than staying in Pointe-à-Pitre, I would strongly recommend it.

No parking place to let the car even just to bring your luggage to the room.

The hotel is located in a bad place were you cannot go out, even for dinner, once it is dark in the evening... because it seems too dangerous. You then must eat in the restaurant but food is not good.

You feel like in jail due to the bars on the windows.

Really not a nice play to stay, only if you don't have any other choice because leaving early in the morning for a cruise.

St J Perse is close to everything, well run, a very nice breakfast included, but, the surrounding neighbourhood "ain't what it used to be". It is - by my standards - expensive, but after (mentally) coping with that, I was satisfied.

Warning! This a simple ,clean comfortable hotel in the city center for those who want for whatever reason to stay in Pointe a Pitre itself and not in one of the resorts 20 km outside the town.
Very eficient with very rich breakfasr- self service-, and good coffee. Is not bad at all. Definetelly not for honeymooners . Near by is the very colorfull fish and fruit market and 2 blocks further the spice market. Free wifi . Recommended with the conditions i have described

Room Tip: Ask for harbour view and brakfast
